The League Two Brewers managed to salvage a 3-3 draw when top-scorer Calvin Zola struck in the third minute of added time after Rowett's men had been given a footballing lesson in an incident-packed game that included two Burton own goals and penalty misses at either end.

Rowett said: "I think we've seen that the cup is still a magical competition because this was a game that had a little bit of everything.

"I thought Altrincham were absolutely fantastic.

"That's what this competition is about sometimes - the lower league team rising to the occasion - and I take my hat off to them because in spells of the game they did really, really well."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
